Album Review

Pro-Social Content

“We Can Make It” seeks to resolve a troubled relationship. Although it plays like a love song, the liner notes qualify it as being “from a father to his son.” The title cut honors people who choose to stand for what’s right, maintaining a positive attitude in the face of opposition. “Livin’ for You” speaks of prayer in a positive context, denounces lying and views true love as meeting the needs of others.

Objectionable Content

Sexual concessions are called for on “Surrender to Me,” which describes a lover as “still kind of sleazy” and “good at teasing.” On “Livin’ for You,” the singer describes a woman as his “religion.”

Summary Advisory

Adults will remember this classic rock band for tunes like “More Than a Feeling” and “Don’t Look Back.” After an 8-year absence, Boston returned with this disc that took four years to complete. But lyrical inconsistency spoils an otherwise fine effort.
